Euell and Wright-Phillips offered new contracts

Euell and Wright-Phillips offered new contracts

Jason Euell and Bradley Wright-Phillips have been offered new contracts in a bid to keep the duo at the club.

It was thought that the two would be exiting St. Mary's following the clubs relegation to League One.

The duo's contracts run out next month, and they could leave the Hampshire side for nothing to join another club.

But Southampton have offered the pair new contracts with reduced wages to try and keep the experienced players on the south coast.

Head Coach Mark Wotte told the official website: 'We have spoken to Jason Euell and Bradley Wright-Phillips and offered them less money of course, but we think they could do well for us in League One.

'However, they have their own things to think about and can sign for anyone on a free, but they are also willing to wait to see what happens here. That shows me they like the club and don't want to leave on the back of relegation and they want to do a better job for us next season.

'I think they recognise this is a great club, not just because of St Mary's and the pitch but because of the fans as well. They were massive for us in the last couple of weeks and were so supportive of us. We want to do well for them next season.'

It's good that the club has realised that these two are very very important members of the team and has given them a chance to stay at the club. Would love to see them stay as in League One they cause havoc.

abesaint, for once I think I will disagree! I for one would not be disappointed if they left. BWP has had a disgraceful season and Euell, although a battler hasn't the ability anymore. I would much rather see any of the kids in Paterson/White/McLaggon attack. Havoc you say - is that on or off the pitch??????

I know where you're coming from, and I agree that they have poor seasons. But, League One is different, will Euell's experience and BWP's pace they could cause trouble. I'm not sure how a team of all youngsters would get on in League One...

Yes, if they can be bothered, which I truly believe they wouldn't be. Wotton, Gillet and Perry will be the spine of our squad next season - unless, a miracle and someone/consortium with money turns up! Next season will be time for Mills/Thomson/Paterson/McLaggon/White etc to stand up and make their mark - actually I am quite looking forward to it!

Yeah that spine would be okay, Wotton seems to try and boss the game, and keep the youngsters in line which is good. Gillett has had a very good season along with Perry. Like you say, L1 is the perfect opportunity for the youngsters to step up. I'm looking forward to next season too, there's some very good away days, and it will be interesting, especially on -10!
